The Hot QuickCoders are a unique contact coding machine and can be adapted for either manual printing or automated product coding!
With it's unique ability to mark moving as well as stationary products, the Hot QuickCoder has the ability to be used in both manual and automatic applications while still offering extremely low maintenance and operating cost.
This system can be used instead of an inkjet - removing the need for messy inks, constant maintenance and high expense. You can purchase about 3 or 4 Hot QuickCoders for the price of 1 base model CIJ.
You can also use this system in place of a hotfoil coder or a rotary coder - installed in an incredible amount of different applications.
One simple, versatile standard package
No matter what application you require, the standard Hot QuickCoder package can cope.
The set comes complete with mounting bracketry needing only 2 mounting points for installation on any angle - printing from the top, side, bottom or at various rotations.
The control unit can be mounted separately from the printing unit to achive easy access away from the printing location.
Printing on practically any material
The Hot QuickCoder is able to print onto practically any porous or non-porous substrate including (but not limited to):
Flexible Plastic (Film)
Hardwall Plastic (bottles, parts etc..)
Metals (aluminium, foils, stainless steel etc...)
Cardboard/Carton/Paper (varnished or unvarnished)
Special thermofusible ink cartridges
One of the most attractive features of the Hot QuickCoders is the inking system.
Instantly dry prints
NO drips, No mess, NO dirty hands
NO solvents required
NO blockages or startup flushing & "priming"
NO ongoing "running" maintenance
NO hazardous goods, fumes or storage needs
Instant ink colour changes
Exceptionally low running cost compared to ink-jet technology
As standard - marks on moving products
With the specially designed "butterfly touch" mechanism, it is possible to print up to 300 codes per minute onto moving products to a maximum speed of 60 meters per minute! - WITHOUT needing any special modifications or additions.
Therefore it is possible to replace an inkjet printing directly onto bottles travelling on a conveyor line, or use the HQC to print onto packing films on a vertical or horizontal form-fill-seal or flow packing unit.
As standard - manual printing flexibility
As an offline coder the HQC unit is an excellent alternative. Mount the unit on a worktable and slide the item underneath OR mount the unit UNDER the worktable for "bottom-up" marking - keeping your workspace clear.
Trend have even been able to mark onto filled crisp packets with a simple worktable as shown.
Therefore for smaller businesses the coder can grow from manual printing to automatic printing as your business grows - NO NEED to buy different printers.
Printing logos or changeable text & numbers
The HQC uses rubber or silicone characters with an interlocking base to slot into the HQC standard typeholders.
Use the standard changeable sets to print:
Use-by or Best-Before expiry dates
Batch or Lot codes
Any alphabetical or numberical combination
Use a custom-made logo type to print any special logo like your company logo. It is possible to insert a custom logo and changeable text in one holder for a single print, withing the maximum printing area of area of 12 x 24 mm.
